Robert Sorby 1 1/4in Flat Paring Gouge.
this is a massive 15+in long incannel paring or coping gouge. The profile is almost completely flat. It's in great shape with a nice clean, long blade. There is some minor chipping fro the end of the handle and the bevel could use a quick grind to straighten it out, but the steel is in great shape. Gouges of this profile and extreme length are hard to come by so the short time spent on the bevel will be well worth it.
